Interview about The Baby and the Bathwater on Pagan Musings Podcast:
On May 5, 2012, I spoke with the Pagan Musings podcast team about some of the incidents I wrote about in The Baby and the Bathwater. I also related some lessons learned about music and culture through running Serpentine Music, and my hopes for a younger generation of Pagan writers and observers. Listen to it right here:
Recent reviews of The Baby and the Bathwater:
A fascinating account of Anne’s musings on what led her to move beyond Reclaiming. I read it at the same time that I’ve been reading bits and pieces of Starhawk’s latest book: The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups. Both women have something important to say (hint: Starhawk is still in favor of consensus decision-making while Hill is less enthusiastic) about how we go forward. Hill’s book is an important contribution to the history of a genuinely American religious movement.
Of all American Witchcraft traditions, Reclaiming seems to be the most prone to self-criticism. Perhaps that is because, as Anne Hill writes in her brief blog-memoir, The Baby and the Bathwater, there was always much conflict over different visions for Reclaiming…Hill, one of the original group’s long-term members, writes things that only an insider could say…The Baby and the Bathwoter sees an up side to Reclaiming too, as Hill visits groups seeded in other areas and savors their enthusiasm.
